A German security expert revealed in the past that iOS 7.0.4 did not encrypt email attachments. The Cupertino firm only admitted the issue when it rolled out iOS 7.1.1 back in April. iOS 7.1.2 is said to fix this problem.

Other than the encryption issue, the email app doesn’t download email messages. The update is said to fix this issue as well. Other issues to be fixed by the update include unauthorised access to a few apps in the lock screen and data transfer issues from third party accessories.
